    Skimmed through this all afternoon on mini-breaks at work up until the end of page 8. Will give proper comment later, I'm just posting to remind myself at which point did I stop reading.

    The back-to-back-to-back promotions at Darlington was ace after all those lost playoffs the seasons before.

    SRL88's Career - December 2020 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    A fantastic run of form which has seen us stretch clear at the top of the Premier League. We have won every game since our defeat in Manchester and the only way things could have been better is if we didnt concede against Norwich. We fully deserved all victories except one and that was at Swansea. They battered us, we grabbed an early second half goal, went down to 10 men and then clung on so we were lucky. Other than that performance though we were utterly brilliant. We scored a massive win over Aston Villa to give us a bit of breathing space before an emphatic win at Sunderland, a result which saw the praise heaped on us.

    League Cup


    A solid win at my former club Blackpool see's us move into the Semi-Final of the League Cup. Our oppenents will be none other than Aston Villa. The Semi-Final is a pretty strong one to.

    December 2020 - Continued



    Europa League




    Two straightforward wins as we topped the group in a comfortable manner. We will face the little known Karpaty of Ukraine in the next round and if we get through that we will face either APOEL or Anji.

    Just for everyone who has commented on the Chelsea front. They have been average in the Premier League with mixed finishes but their worst being last season when they finished 9th. In typical Abramovich fashion there have been plenty of Managers.

    They have lost 2 FA Cup Final's. One to Leicester and that unbelievable 8-0 game against my Villa side. They also lost to Wolves in the League Cup Final.

    Should I accept? Dzagoev is now 30yo and worth £9.75m and on pretty high wages. He is also in and out of the team.

    SRL88's Career - January 2021 - Liverpool FC

    Transfers - In

    Dan Cousins - A direct replacement for the departing Dzagoev. Not as good as him, but we could have done with the extra English player and he is also 1 1/2* away from full potential.

    Transfers - Out


    A few departures during January with the biggest being Dzagoev's move to Barcelona. Club legend Lucas Leiva returned to Brazil where he will finish his career.

    Premier League




    We remain unbeaten since our defeat at Old Trafford and also grabbed a huge win over Man City in the process. That helped us stretch our lead at the top and with just 15 games to go, we are in a fantastic position. Going into the season I would have ever expected us to be where we are around now, but we are performing fantastically well and deserve to be up there.

    FA Cup


    To very good wins in the FA Cup to help us move into the 5th Round where will face either Sunderland or Chelsea.

    League Cup


    Excellent work. In my first season in charge at Anfield we have the opporunity to lift a trophy. We will be competiting in the League Cup Final (my 2nd in a row) where we will face our bitter rivals Man Utd.

    After reading this thread it is making me think about switching to monthly updates, it seems better to get into someone else's game through monthly updates.

    Villa dropping off now and you are in a very strong position in the league. Good luck dude.

    I prefer updates the monthly way. Not that I hate the way you or Snake do it for example, but like you said, people feel more into it. I think a lot of that shows in the number of posts from people.

    I love the detail you go into, but I keep going into yours and thinking 'will you hurry up and update so I can read it' ha.

    Its a shame for Villa as well, but they're still performing very strong. Looks like they will have a nice battle with Arsenal from now till the end of the season.

    We will need to hold our nerve, but we just dont look like losing at the minute. We have only played really bad in 3 games this season and that was both games against Man City & away to Swansea.

    If I was wanting someone above Dzagoev's level I would have had to spend £35m+. Cousin's should be a solid player. I wanted him when I was at Blackpool and he was still at Bournemouth. They wern't having any of it and when I joined Villa, Blackpool signed him anyway ha.

    SRL88's Career - February 2021 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    Our fine league form continues as we once again won all three games during the month which means we have dropped points in just one game since our defeat at Old Trafford in November. We had to work hard for our results and Daniel Cousin's couldnt have got his Liverpool career off to a better start with two fantastic goals to help us on our way against Wolves & Newcastle.

    February 2021 - Continued



    FA Cup


    What a result. We were down and out at half time when we found ourselves 2-0 down, but a brilliant second half performance which saw Raheem Sterling score a hat-trick as we came back to win 3-2. In the Quater-Final we have a home tie against Fulham. Think this thing is set up for another Cup Final against Man Utd?? Yeah, me to!!!

    Europa League


    An easy passage into the next round in Europe. We done the job away from home so I could rest players in the return leg. We will face APOEL in the next round.

    Its a massive increase for us. Should help out long term and if I can get another increase in capacity we will be on level terms with the likes of Arsenal or Man Utd.

    Final

    Road to Wembley


    Liverpool


    We had a pretty good passage to the Final with our only major trouble being in the second leg against Aston Villa when we were on the back foot and were 2-0 down. Otherwise we have performed pretty well to get to Wembley, knocking our Premiership sides Arsenal & Leicester before beating both my former clubs Blackpool & Aston Villa

    Man Utd


    Man Utd have probably had the easier route to the Final. They comfortabley beat rivals Man City in the 3rd Round before kind draws against Middlesbrough and Stoke. They survived a scare in the Semi-Final against Blackburn however. Things looked sewn up after an emphatic win the first leg but Blackburn hit them back in the return leg. They really should have won but Man Utd managed to hang on to move into the Final.

    The Match

    First Half


    The first 15 minutes passed by without much happening. Man Utd had a few chances and were by far the better side but nothing eventful happened which is why nothing has really been typed ha. Half Time 0-0.

    Second Half


    The second half was once again a drab affair as both sides failed to create chances but Man Utd were again the better side. We were struggling to get into things but defended well and the second half, much like the first passed by with nothing happening. Full Time 0-0.

    Extra Time


    Things really picked up in the extra period. We finally started to come alive and created chances. Sterling and Alaba had pretty good chances but De Gea saved well. We finally broke the deadlock in a dull Final in the 101st minute as our main man Chris Ord scored from 15 yards to give us a 1-0 lead. I was pretty confident that we would hang on with how well we defended but a deflected shot fell to the fee of Javier Hernandez who poked home to make it 1-1 after 110 minutes. Thats how it stayed and we went to penalties. Full Time 1-1.

    Penalties


    Up first stepped Wayne Rooney, goal (1-0), Chris Ord scores (1-1), Martinez misses as does Lancaster (1-1). We each scored the next three penalties (4-4) to take it to sudden death. Hernandez scored (5-4). This left the pressure on our right back Corchia who had his penalty saved to hand the trophy to Man Utd.


    Summary



    Pretty annoyed really. We didnt turn up until Extra Time and were slightly lucky to get there. Man Utd had a few chances and could have scored. Our goalkeeper was MOTM and its no suprise why. Would have liked to lift a trophy, but we have bigger fish to fry.

    Not a bad day for my two Liverpool strikers. Immediately after the game however, Andy Lancaster's agent requested a new contract for his player following a fantastic International debut with the request of £62k per week. Sorry mate, but your not worth that much!!!

    SRL88's Career - March 2021 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    We have really struggled domestically following our League Cup defeat to Man Utd. Although we remained unbeaten it seems our heads have dropped a little due to the performances put in. We should have beat WBA to be honest. We were all over them but couldnt take our chances and also had a man sent off to add to a disappointing result. Stoke more than matched us at The Britannia and it took a 94th minute Chris Ord goal to give us a win. We also struggled against bottom side Watford, finding ourselves 1-0 down. It wasnt until late on that we made the game look comfortable. Still though, we are top of the table, 10pts clear with a game in hand. We're looking good for the title.

    March 2021 - Continued



    FA Cup


    The result doesnt really tell the story as Fulham scored with their only two shots. We deserved to go through and in the Semi-Final's we will meet Man Utd. The winners of that tie will then face the winner of the Man City and Stoke/Cardiff tie.

    Europa League


    Another comfortable passage in Europe. Rob Wilson was fantastic in both legs with 4 goals. We will face Fiorentina in the Quater-Final and the prospect of an all British tie in the Semi-Final.

    Obviouslly doesnt take into account penalty losses. Would rather it have come with a win in that 1 game, but still a remarkable achievement

    Epic thread. I normally stay at one club, so to see somebody jump from club to club like this is great.

    Fingers crossed you can take a few more trophies to Anfield.

    Cheers fella!!! This is my first journeyman save. I usually tend to stay at one club as well but thought I would give this a go and I am thoroughly enjoying it.

See, a goal for a million pounds of transfer payment :P

    SRL88's Career - April 2021 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    A very tough month in terms of opponents for us and we continue to struggle against Man Utd. Much like the League Cup Final, we didnt turn up and they deserved their win. I knew going into the Arsenal game we really needed a result because Man Utd were right on our tails and boy did we get a result. A fantastic display from the lads ensured we left The Emirates with a massive 6-1 win and ensured that we would be playing Champions League football next term.

    Just days after our FA Cup Semi-Final we played out a boring draw with Fulham as I made numerous changes to the side. Another trip to London rounded off the month as our tactics were spot on against Chelsea and our style of hitting them on the counter proved a treat as we won 2-0. So, we're nearly there. We have 5 games left including a game in hand over Man Utd and we have a pretty decent run in to. YNWA!!!!

    April 2021 - Contunued



    FA Cup


    Finally we ended our Manchester United hoodoo with a well deserved 2-0 win, and in doing so reached the FA Cup Final (my 3rd in a row). Following their impressive extra time win, we have the task of beating Stoke in the Final to lift the famous trophy.

    Europa League




    A brilliant win over Fiorentina in the Quater-Finals, none more so than a fantastic display away from home set up an all British tie against Celtic in the Semi-Final. We dominated the first leg of the tie but just couldnt score. Their goalkeeper was awarded the MOTM award and we go to Park Head with every chance of making the Final.

    Or he is definitely taking a lot of money off us, but to be fair, without him we wouldnt have performed as well as we have. His all round play has been brilliant and he has been our main goal source. The number of chances we have created and missed without him in the side is so frustrating, and his 22 goals so far in the league have came in 28 starts, so he isnt doing to bad.

    FA Cup Final

    Road to Wembley



    Liverpool




    A pretty straight forward run for us to Wembley. We have played Premiership opposition in every round and our only real threat of being knocked out came at the Stadium of Light where Sunderland gave us a very good game. We finally beat Manchester United as we ensured yet another trip to Anfield South.

    Stoke




    Stoke have had a much easier road to Wembley with their only Premiership tie being in the Semi-Final against Man City. They have required a few replays but made it to Wembley in pretty good fashion.

    First Half



    Both teams created early chances but failed to take them. Stoke had a very good chance after 12 minutes but Danny Welbeck shot straight at Ojeda to our relief. They continued to have the better of the first half but after 32 minutes, the ball fell to our captain Stevan Jovetic who blasted the ball in off the post from 20 yards out as the Liverpool end (and bench) went wild. Stoke looked stunned as we began to take control and 10 minutes later our tallisman Chris Ord broke free to fire home to give us a 2-0 lead. Straight off kick-off, we won the ball back and Ord took on 3 men before blasting in from 14 yards out as we were in dream land going into the interval. Half Time 3-0.

    Second Half


    We came out for the second half in good spirit. At 3-0 we were in control and played really well going into the interval. We kept things the same as Stoke tried to find a way back into the game but it was all over when after 57 minutes, Jovetic stroked the ball home from close range to give us a brilliant 4-0 lead. At that point I knew it was over as our fans were bouncing. Ojeda scored an own goal after 68 minutes, but thats as close as it came in a dull second half, but thats not suprising considering the score line. Full Time 4-1.


    Summary



    What is it with me and the FA CUp? That is three FA Cup crowns in a row for me as a Manager having won two in a row with Aston Villa and now one with Liverpool. In doing so we have won 4-1, 8-0 and 4-1. Really pleased to put the defeat to Man Utd in the League Cup behind us as we lift the first trophy under the Longstaff regime.

    Chris Ord has scored 34 goals so far this season in all competitions, levelling Luis Suarez's record in the 2nd last game of the season...............and then gets injured .

    SRL88's Career - May 2021 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    We've done it . We didnt even have to do it ourselves as following a 0-0 draw with Fulham we clinched the title, much to the delight of our fans, board and a certain King. I rested numerous players for the Villa game as it was directly before the FA Cup Final but I wasnt bothered. Excellent wins over Swansea & Everton followed before we conceded a last minute goal against Blackburn but we are CHAMPIONS!!!!

    May 2021 - Continued



    FA Cup


    Another FA Cup triumph for me as a Manager and Liverpool's first since 2014.

    Europa League


    So we're into the Europa League Final following a hard fought win over Celtic. It took extra time, but David Alaba bundled a shot home to clinch a 1-0 win where we will face Real Betis in the Final.

    Final




    So a disappointing end to our European adventure as we lost to Betis who win their 2nd title in 3 years. Chris Ord should have scored within the opening minute but blazed over from 6 yards. We never really created any clear cut chances but Im still pleased to have achieved what we have this season.

    SRL88's Career - Season Review - 2020/21 - Liverpool FC


    Premier League - Results 1 - Results 2 (1st - CHAMPIONS)

    An unbelievable season which still has be delighted. We were the front runners for much of the season and deserved our title. Man Utd were our bogey side, doing the double over us, but it wasnt enough to stop us being crowned Champions. We kept up a good lead at the top all season pretty much so it didnt come as a suprise when we lifted the trophy in May.

    FA Cup (Winners)

    Another FA Cup for myself as a Manager, making it 3 in a row for me. We lifted the trophy with an impressive win over Stoke.

    League Cup (Runners-Up)

    A good run to the Final, but we didnt show up and lost on penalties to Man Utd.

    Europa League (Runners-Up)

    We breezed through the group stages in impressive fashion and continued our form into the knockout stages. We marched our way to the Final without conceding before losing 1-0 to Real Betis.

    Transfers - Finances

    A mass amount of transfer activity this season but it was needed. There were a lot of overpaid and old players (still are to) who needed moving on and I replaced them with young, hungry players who all played their part in a fantastic season.
    The finances changed a lot. We were losing around £10m a month but thanks to lots of high wages and also paying off monthly installments it was bound to happen. Still, they are healthy and our sponsers means we bring in around £60m each year.

    Squad

    We had a very good squad this season and everyone performed to such a high standard. As mentioned, there are still a lot of older, overpaid players who need to be moved on and that is my aim during the off season.

    My Top 3 Players

    Christopher Ord - The big money man didnt disappoint. An impressive goal tally from him as well as impressive general all round play.
    Steven Jovetic - Our captain proved a valuable asset. It might be his last season due to his high wages and also the face that he handed in a transfer request due to Dzagoev's departure.
    Nicolas Otamendi - At 32/33yo over the season, I was really considering cashing in, but what a season he had. 7 league goals and the general at the back. Key asset.

    Well that was Liverpool's 20th league title. Man Utd have 25. I think I have set myself a challenge.

    They fell away in the latter part of the season, but still a pretty good one for their first season under Alan Shearer.

    This is the redevelopment I had asked for, so Im guessing we have two redevelopments going on.

    If I have done my Maths correctly (most likely not), then I think it will be in the 62,000.

    Definitely. Probably one of my better returns in terms of goals per game that I have had on FM.

    Likewise, the one thing keeping me from doing it, is that I did it in another forum a few years back and it felt like it took AGES to progress in the game. I'd rather play 6 months in a go then waste 2 hours writing a massive update, than play-write-screenshots-play-write-screenshots. But I might try it for a season to see if I like it now, it definitely makes for a more interactive, closer reading.

    So I finally caught up by reading the last 3 pages. SUPERB 8-0 win on that FA Cup final last year. I don't fancy Liverpool but looks like you're doing a quality job with them too, surely laying the foundations to conquer Europe within the next few years (if not next season already). I'm amazed Ord performed that well, quite frankly he looked nowhere near 55M£-worth when I saw the screenie of his profile.

    I dont think we are ready to win the Champions League just yet, but I think we may do a Benitez style Liverpool and perform very well in Europe. We were fantastic in the Europa League really and I was probably modest in the fact that I was quite annoyed that we didnt beat Betis in the Final because we dominated the whole competition.

    I honestly dont believe Ord is worth £55m myself, but you know what the market is like for English players. The club lacked them badly, or especially lacked quality ones at that so I had to spend the money to bring them in. He performed fantastic. His pace alone gets him into the positions to score goals. That alone makes him worth at least £20m because the positions he gets himself into by taking on 3 or 4 players or just breaking the offside trap was just scary. He also has the finishing to back it up so I wasnt that bothered about spending it.

    Im having to massively change the squad as well. When I joined there were a lot of players in the 30+ age bracket on massively high wages. I got rid of as many as I could without to much change by keeping the likes of Dzagoev and Jovetic but they were still sitting on huge wages and at their age I didnt think they were worth it. Probably played a massive part in me selling Dzagoev as well as getting £19m I think it was. Also, I have sold Jovetic (SPOLIER ) in pre-season to further save on wages and hope to bring in quite a few younger players on less wages.

    Decided to take the Squad section out of the season preview because I am constantly adding to it through pre-season & August.

    Great opening season with Liverpool. Pity it's with them though!!!

    I personally don't like spending thuge sums such as you did on Ord, but he really justified it. If you're hoping to go past United 25 titles then he'll be crucial to your plans.

    Good luck in the coming season.

    Loving the reasoning behind the community shield, I agree completely.

    Is Papadopolous usually played at centre-back and if so is his partner good in the air? Because that seems to be just about the only weakness he has. Thinking about that, is Coates still about? Cos if there is one thing big Seb is good at...

    Oh yeah, congrats on a great career so far and please, please get us back on our perch!

    He has been fantastic so far. Its not just his goal ratio that impresses me, its his all round play. He links up brilliantly with team mates.

    Last season I used him as an anchor man in midfield, but this season I have pushed him back to CB where he plays alongside Nicolas Otamendi. Coates joined Palermo in 2018/19 and his stats have massively declined.

    He should do well. High influence and about the right age as well. I have taken the vice captains armband off Pepe Reina as well. He is 38, 39 by the end of the season and although I wont be playing him, I have got him to become a Goalkeeping Coach so I will offer him a contract as a coach at the end of the season.

    Was hoping to play last night, but I left my laptop at work . Girlfriend is going out tonight though so I will have a few hours on it tonight .

    SRL88's Career - Pre-Season - 2021/22 - Liverpool FC

    Friendlies


    A pretty solid pre-season with some nice wins in there over sides such as Real Madrid & Malaga. Just the one blip (draw) away to Genk but overall, a good pre-season under our belts results in confidence being pretty high going into the season.

    Community Shield


    A great way to kick off the campaign by picking up from where we left off last season. A tense encounter which could have gone either way, but Rob Wilson grabbed the only goal of the game as we won 1-0.

    Transfers - In


    Some expensive buys again during the transfer window to revamp our squad for the season. Lets have a look at the individuals:

    Eder Jair Herrera - £19.5m - Splashed big money on this guy but I really wanted a winger who can knock a ball past an oppenent and just whip crosses in and he fits the bill.

    Augusto - £29m - The big money signing of the window, but with Vidal and a couple of others also leaving I felt we needed a ball-winner in the middle of the park. Money well spent in my eyes.

    Gilvan - £12m - A player I signed for Aston Villa so I know his qualities, and he was a lot younger then. Improved quite a bit and still no where near his full potential.

    Matias Ruiz Diaz - Loan - Signed as a back-up only. I would like to use Jack Robinson as my main back-up because he rejected Sunderland, but he still wants to leave and is twisting. I dont want anyone like that in my first team.

    Fuska - Loan - A player I have tracked for some time now. Glad to have brought him in, even if just on loan. If he impresses, I might stump up the high fee that is demanded.

    Yonatan Tal - £75k - A one for the future. Might try and give him a few cup games to see how he does.

    Ivan Segovia - £12.5m - Another player with loads of potential. If he settles in England he could be fantastic.

    Michael Zemanek - £2.7m - Just 17yo and not even in the yellow star ratings yet. If he is developed properly he could be a beast.

    Transfers - Out


    Quite pleased with the money we brought into the club. Im slowly getting rid of the old guard when they still have value to their names and also getting rid of a lot of players who I dont think are good enough for Liverpool Football Club.

    Group Stage Draw




    A pretty tough draw which will depend on the away ties against PSG & Malaga I think. We beat Malaga in pre-season at home so I know we can beat them, but playing in Spain is a different kettle of fish. Could have been worse I suppose as I could have drawn the mega-rich At.Madrid or Palermo.

    SRL88's Career - August/September 2021 - Liverpool FC

    Premier League




    You know what, Im pretty pissed off actually. All that effort in the opening 5 games to not concede and score so many goals we then let it all slip with a shocking performance against Man City to hand us not only our first defeat of the season, but also the first goal we condeded as well. Really annoyed with that!!! Prior to that however we were fantastic. The number of goals we scored was fantastic a we ripped defences apart. A fantastic start to the season which would have been so much better without one result.

    League Cup


    A comfortable win to kick off our League Cup campaign as we try to wipe out the defeat to Man Utd in last seasons Final. We will face Coventry in the next round.

    August/September 2021 - Continued






    A brilliant start to the Champions League for us. I was expecting victory over Salzburg but the win in Malaga really pleased me. It came just after the defeat to Man City, but we didnt let that effect us as we had a tough battle in Spain but managed to come away with a vital 1-0 win.
